Leelanau Community Read: November 11 – 19

Leelanau County public libraries invite you to join an extended, county-wide discussion of We Hope For Better Things by Erin Bartels, a 2020 Michigan Notable Book. The dialogue will begin with a live Q & A with the author, via Zoom, on Wednesday, November 11 at 7:00pm. The following week, two discussion sessions will be hosted by Norm Wheeler, on Wednesday, November 18 at 2:00pm, and Thursday, November 19 at 7:00pm.  The first ten patrons to register at each library will receive a complimentary copy of the book. Contact us to register and receive the Zoom meeting details. To borrow a copy, check our catalog for holdings, or order via MelCat if needed.  You may also purchase a copy from area booksellers, including Glen Arbor’s Cottage Book Shop.

Michigan Notable Books: author interviews

Every year, the Library of Michigan selects up to twenty of the most notable books, either written by a Michigan resident or about Michigan or the Great Lakes. Each selected title speaks to our state’s rich cultural, historical, and literary heritage and proves without a doubt that some of the greatest stories are found in the Great Lakes State. This year, the statewide tour of notable authors has gone online, with a series of recorded interviews.
